HyperStore 7 is described as bridging both on-premises and cloud environments, letting users manage data in both private and public clouds around the globe as a single, unified storage pool.

HyperStore 7 is a scale-out platform that lets users store, protect and search data from one management screen, no matter where the data physically resides. In a data center, HyperStore 7 can be deployed either as multiple appliances or on industry-standard servers to form a single, limitlessly scalable storage system. Now, users can also deploy HyperStore 7 software as an application in the public cloud to provide a single view of data across clouds and on-prem storage.

Key features of HyperStore 7 include:

Unified data management: Store, manage, protect and search data across clouds and on-prem environments from a single console

Access to data anywhere via a common API: Employ a single S3 API to access storage assets on-prem and in public clouds, including Microsoft Azure, Google GCP and Amazon AWS

Scale-out architecture: Deploy multiple HyperStore instances, either on-prem or in the cloud, to scale capacity, performance and availability

Converged data access: Store data in the native format of any public cloud, ensuring seamless data access for cloud-based applications

Merged files and objects: Consolidate object data as well as Windows and Linux files to a single storage environment with Cloudian HyperFile

“To effectively manage data across platforms and around the globe, IT managers need solutions that scale in every dimension, spanning on-premises and cloud storage, multiple geographies, and both files and objects,” said Michael Tso, CEO of Cloudian. “HyperStore 7 is the first to provide a scale-out architecture – with clustered storage controllers both on-prem and in the cloud – that creates a genuinely unified file and object storage environment.”

The HyperStore 7 platform is available now as software-defined storage and as a fully-supported appliance with integrated capacities ranging from 48TB to 840TB per device. The software can be deployed both on-premises and in the cloud. Cloudian HyperFile integrates with HyperStore 7 to provide file services that are fully interoperable with SMB (CIFS) and NFS protocols.

Compared with traditional Tier 1 storage, Cloudian HyperStore saves 70 percent on CAPEX by leveraging industry-standard servers and employing a scaling model that lets users start small and grow non-disruptively. Pricing for fully configured appliances, with storage, starts at less than half a cent per GB/month. A HyperFile Basic version software license is included with HyperStore 7.

Cloudian HyperStore and HyperFile are available from Cloudian, from Cloudian reseller partners worldw ide and from Cloudian strategic partners, including Lenovo and HPE.
